Overall Leadership




 

         Octavian's overal leadership was one of great power and showed all the leadership qualities that he posessed. Through these qualities that he had, he was able to rule for Rome efficently and in a good manner. One such quality that Octavian had was military smartness. From when Octavian went with his Uncle Caeser into battle, Octavian demonstarted his skill to Caeser, which could have made Caeser relieze that Octavian would be the one to replace him. Octavian also showed that he knew how to control the people of Rome, treating them with respect and doing things that they appricated such as supporting the arts and beautifying the city. Octavian also showed that he knew how to make people of great power comfortable with losing their power, such as when Octavian gradually took power away from the Senate of Rome. Through all of Octavian's rulings though, his most important leadership quality that he had was his intelligence. Without knowing what to do Octavian never could have never made the excellent decisons he did. Wheather Octavian made decisons in Rome's military, or he decided on some political issue, without the intelligence that Octavian had then Rome would have never done as well as it had. Octavian had many qualities about him that made him who he was, and who he was was one of the best rulers Rome ever had, a leader who gave Rome a push in the right direction that continued on even after his death.
